Volunteer Recognition

Girl Scout awards are deeply rooted in tradition and create a great sense of pride for volunteers. Each year, Girl Scouts formally recognizes those Girl Scout adult members whose accomplishments are significant. Awarded recognitions provide the means to acknowledge individuals for their unique and outstanding service.

A formal nomination system has been established by the Girl Scouts of the U.S.A. Recommendations for adult awards can be initiated by adult volunteers, Service Unit task groups, and/or family members. The selection of recipients is made by a council task group/board of directors. This increases the significance of the honor.

Volunteer Awards:

  • Volunteer of Excellence
  • The Appreciation Pin
  • The Honor Pin
